Dry cough, sore throat. Taking cough syrup, lozenges. Will eating mangoes aggravate my condition?

I have this dry cough and sore throat . Although I have taken the medications from my doctor ( antibiotics , lozenges, cough syrup ), this is the 6th day and I m still having the same problem although probably improving. My question: will eating mangoes (which I love so much) worsen my sore throat and dry cough? What other fruits should I take?
